Jury's still out

Nice scenery, nice costumes, but not a lot happened in Episode 1.

The thing that struck me most was the number of characters from a non- European heritage - would this really have been the case in Edwardian times, or is it political correctness filling quotas?

I'll probably have to read the book to check!
